My names are Iva Lengwe Mumba I am a 39 year old Zambian .I am currently working for a Lottery company as Estates Manager.My profession is management and Administration for which i possess certificates and Diplomas.I have been in formal employement for 19 years.
Towards the end of the year 2006 i realised that i had an inborn writting talent which many people had noticed and communicated to me.
I wrote my first fiction novel called the Punter within two days and went on to publish it.It is currently selling well.
I have since written a total of five fiction novels against the background that I have never studied any writting related course .All these books were written in a space of two months.
The other titles are ready for publication but at the moment I don't have enough funds to publish them.
The titles for my books are:
The Punter The Rapist The Mirror The Waterless Tears The Victim
All my books are educational in nature with a strict focus on our cultural beliefs,life styles and traditional norms. They are mostly based on witchcraft and HIV & AIDS as awareness crusade on these social evils.
I am currently working on a magazine called "ZAMPOOL" as a new product under my newly registered publishing company called LIVAM PUBLISHERS. I am also in the process of creating an organisation to be called Young Authors Bureau which will be teaching school going children how to become good and successful Authors and Screenplay writers.
We are just waiting for an approval from the Ministry of Education for the commencement of the operations.
